Changes to Apple Music Sales and Trends Reports

November 15, 2017

Apple Music reports have been updated to provide more data about your streams. These changes will impact report ingestion, and you may need to update your systems to take advantage of the new data.


Royalty Bearing Threshold Change

Starting November 15, 2017, Sales and Trends reports now reflect the new royalty bearing threshold of 30 seconds.


  • Reports for plays prior to this date do not reflect the updated threshold.
  • Financial reports introduced this threshold change beginning in Period 2 of Apple's fiscal calendar.


Report Versioning

To allow you to continue downloading reports while you update your systems, we've introduced report versioning. Starting February 7, 2018, you must specify a version number to download reports using Reporter.


For the current version for each report, see the Reporter User Guide. You can also now use getReportVersion to check for the latest version of any report.
